Surprise tribute offered to 37-year employee.By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comMen laughed as they recalled boyhood memories of fun and mischief Saturday night for the Boys Club of Columbia Countys 40th anniversary celebration. The celebration at the Columbia County Fairgrounds banquet hall was also a surprise tribute to Kathleen Cummings, the clubs familiar face and 37-year employee. Affectionately called Mrs. Kay and technically the administrative assistant and bookkeeper, Cummings is a driving force for the club, said Bill Caley, Boys Club executive director. Before I do anything I ask Mrs. Kay, he said. When the club was without an executive director, Cummings kept the club running, he said. Caley and Cummings are the clubs only full-time employees. Fletcher Kirby, 1975 Boy of the Year, said memories about the club came flood-ing back to him Saturday after seeing old friends, pic-tures and newspaper clip-pings. Its truly been a special place to a lot of people in this county, he said to the crowd of about 150 people. The club had humble beginnings in an old house near the current Girls Club, he said. The boys played pool, collected stamps and coins, took music lessons, played sports and went on trips, he said. It was just a great time.

Lake City ReporterSUNDAY, APRIL 22, 2012 | YOUR COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER SINCE 1874 | $1.00 LAKECITYREPORTER.COM 6A D1 Home sales highest since 2006Median sale priceup slightly as wellover March 2011.By LAURA HAMPSONlhampson@lakecityreporter.comSixty homes sold in the Lake City-Live Oak mar ket last month, the highest monthly sales total since 2006. The number of closed sales increased 13.2 percent from March 2011, when 53 single family, site-built homes were sold, accord-ing to the Lake City Board of Realtors. Thirty homes were sold in February. Pending sales increased 89.7 percent from March 2011, as offers were accept-ed on 74 homes. Nine homes in March sold for more than $200,000, while four homes sold for less than $20,000, said Dan Gherna, Lake City Board of Realtors vice president. The median sale price last month was $98,650, up 1.7 percent from the year-ago figure. Housing analysts note that sales of foreclo-sures and other distressed properties can downwardly distort the median price. The average sale price was $114,045, down 4.4 per-cent from last year. Gherna said March and April are generally busy times in real estate, as people often begin home searches in January and close in spring. Summer is also a popular time to buy a home because parents want to settle into a home before the school year begins, he said. Local real estate broker Charlie Sparks said positive housing trends can seen across the state and nation, not just in the Lake City HOMES continued on 3A MEET YOUR NEIGHBOR: INGO JOHR JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterLake City resident Ingo Johr, 82, gestures as he recollec ts his time as a youth in Germany during World War II, an d even recalls riding through Hamburg in Adolf Hitlers car.He met Hitler as a boy, chose America insteadFamily risked death housing a Jewish man.By HANNAH O. BROWNhbrown@lakecityreporter.comEditors note: Meet Your Neighbor is an occasional series on local residents whose stories we think youd like to hear. At age 6, Ingo Johr rode through the town of Hamburg, Germany in Adolf Hitlers car. Johr remembers hearing Hitlers voice. He recalls it sounded soft and nice. Johr, who has lived in Lake City since 1984, was born in Hamburg in 1930. His father was a state attorney and like many Germans during that time, was enchanted by the prom-ises of work that Hitler espoused. The German people didnt know that Hitler was a dictator, Johr said. He was our Fuehrer, you know. We believed him. Johr grew up during the burgeoning of World War II in the seat of the conflict. He dodged bullets while he walked to school, hiding from fighter planes in the ditches. It was fun. We thought it was a joke, Johr said. A big thing was after an attack we climbed around the rooftops and collected shrapnel and all the bombs had different colors. His father was a paying member of the Nazi party, but did not attend meet ings. He was just paying his dues, Johr said. One day during the war, his father brought home a Jewish man to their fam-ily apartment. The man hid out in the apartment for six months in a room with no windows. One day he told my mother he was leaving, Johr said. He said it was too dangerous. After the war the man showed up again. He had survived the concentration JOHR continued on 3A WatergatefigureColson diesOnce considered ruthless, he became known for prison ministry.By JESSICA GRESKOAssociated PressWASHINGTON Charles Colson, the tough-as-nails special counsel to President Richard Nixon who went to prison for his role in a Watergate-related case and became a Christian evangelical helping inmates, has died. He was 80. Colsons death was confirmed by Jim Liske, the chief executive of the Lansdowne, Va.-based Prison Fellowship Ministries that Colson founded. Liske said the preliminary cause of death is complications from brain surgery Colson had at the end of March. Colson, with his trademark hornrimmed glasses, was known as the evil genius of the Nixon administration who once said hed walk over his grandmother to get the president elected to a second term. I shudder to think of what Id been if I had not gone to prison, Colson said in 1993. Lying on the rotten floor of a cell, you know its not prosperity or pleasure thats important, but the maturing of the soul. The Washington Post described him in 1972 as one of the most powerful presidential aides, variously described as a troubleshooter and as a master of dirty tricks.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS LOS ANGELESTelevision networks are masters of self-promotion, so its no surprise that Fox is carving out two prime-time hours Sunday to celebrate its 25th year. But why quibble over the hoopla planned for the 8-10 p.m. EDT showcase? With Ryan Seacrest as ringmaster, lets give a shout-out to the stars of Married ... With Children, The X Files, In Living Color, Ally McBeal, Beverly Hills, 90210, House and . And, in center stage, the enduring The Simpsons and TVs great gamechanger, American Idol, are taking a bow. Its an impressive showing for a network thats less than half the age of competitors NBC, CBS and ABC. As analyst Brad Adgate of Horizon Media sees it, Fox hasnt just met expectations, its exceeded them. Of the major networks, its the only one that can bring in younger audiences on a regular basis, Adgate said. They have brought out some breakthrough shows ... Theyve really done things that the other three networks wouldnt have done with their programming. From a modest October 1986 debut with The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers and its first night of primetime programming in April 1987, Fox weathered industry skepticism and midlife crisis (Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire? and other groaners) to make its case for survival and success. Fox proved that, yes, there was room for a fourth U.S. broadcast network, three decades after Dumont dissolved in 1955 and left the Big Three networks to slice up an increasingly rich pie. Yes, a broadcast network could shrink its prime-time lineup to the hours between 8-10 p.m. ET, allowing lucrative local newscasts control of the 10 oclock hour, and prosper. Yes, airing outrageously cheeky fare ranging from clever (Tracey Ullman) to exploitive (Temptation Island) would lure the 18-to-49year-old audience that make advertisers swoon. Fox became profitable after just three years of operation, according to Outfoxed, the 1990 book by Alex Ben Block detailing the networks birth. That success turned competitors into copycats, extending Foxs influence across the medium. The networks creation was a real trial by fire for all of us, said Garth Ancier, Foxs inaugural programming chief. My mentor at NBC, Brandon Tartikoff, thought I was crazy, and he was probably right. The challenge: How do we carve the audience in a different way from NBC, ABC and CBS? How do you grab people by their shirt collars and drag them over to an alternative? Ancier said. A key answer was development of a stable of reality shows including Americas Most Wanted and Cops, the latter using portable video cameras to reimagine the scripted police drama. Rupert Murdoch, the News Corp. media mogul behind Fox, also urged his executives to look outside the U.S. market for ideas, Ancier recalled. Hes always been an internationally focused guy and knows whats working in other countries, he said. That global focus helped bring American Idol to Fox from the U.K. in June 2002, but not before Fox found itself on shaky ground, said Gail Berman, its programming head from 2000-05. When I came in, the network was not in particularly good shape, she recalled, with then-News Corp. President Peter Chernin cautioning her that she had to boost company morale along with ratings (although Fox had reached No. 1 with teenagers and adults 18 to 34). Having been the fourth network, there was a sense that being at the bottom of the barrel was an OK place to be, Berman said. We built a great team of people that could really change the culture of When Animals Attack to the culture of American Idol. In her tenure at Fox, the network also found a new measure of scripted success, with and The O.C. among the hits, and new peer respect. In 2005, Fox earned 49 Emmy Award nominations, the most in its history, including 11 nods each for 24 and the critically acclaimed Arrested Development, which the year before won the Emmy for best comedy series. But it was the next wave of reality American Idol and the talent contest genre that put the ratings into orbit. Mike Darnell is a key part of Foxs culture, past and present. Among Foxs longest-serving executives and currently president of alternative entertainment, with Idol part of his portfolio, his network bio proudly lists previous hits including Worlds Wildest Police Chases and Worlds Most Amazing Medical Oddities. He hasnt, and wont, apologize for that brand of shows. With apparent glee, he recalls how they were routinely branded by critics as the end of Western civilization, sleazy and lowbrow.

John 10:28-30 NIV Scott signs off on new state university in LakelandTALLAHASSEEGov. Rick Scott, ignoring calls for a veto from influential business leaders, signed a measure into law on Friday that will create the states 12th public university. Scott also signed nearly 30 other bills, many of them carrying out provisions in the nearly $70 billion budget that he approved earlier this week. He also vetoed four others dealing with early learning, technology purchases, insurance and the state employee health insurance program. Scotts decision will allow a branch campus of the University of South Florida in Lakeland to become a stand-alone university. It follows months of wrangling over the future of the school that will now be called Florida Polytechnic University. Last year, backers of the school called for independence, but instead the state board that oversees universities insisted that the school meet accreditation and other requirements over the next several years before being allowed to part from USF. State Sen. J.D. Alexander, however, used his clout in the GOP-controlled Legislature to pass a bill (SB 1994) that called for a divorce from USF as soon as possible. The Lake Wales Republican and powerful Senate budget chairman called it a great day for Florida. He said it will help the state since the schools focus will be on producing graduates in fields such as science, technology, engineering and math. Im confident that the governors decisions will help us put Florida to work in a way that improves our economy, Alexander said. Critics questioned the idea of establishing a startup university during a year when the overall state university system had its state funding cut by $300 million. The school also will not initially have any students since current USF students will be allowed to remain enrolled at the branch campus. This move is nothing more than an appalling and wasteful power play by the Republicans in Tallahassee, said Florida Democratic Party spokeswoman Brannon Jordan. The people of Florida didnt ask for this university, they dont need it and cant afford it. The Florida Council of 100 a group of business leaders that includes officials from such companies as Publix Super Markets and AT&T wrote to Scott and urged a veto, pointing out it could be years before the school could even gain accreditation, which is needed so students can obtain federal aid or researchers can apply for federal grants. Scott, however, defended his decision to create the new school. To remake the states economy, he said in a bill signing letter, its crucial to create more jobs in fields that will allow Florida to compete with states such as California and Texas. Both of those states have outpaced Florida in the number of jobs grown in the last year. The establishment of Florida Polytechnic University will help us move the needle in the right direction, Scott said. It is vital for the future of Floridas economy. Dean Colson, the current chairman of the panel that oversees all state universities, said that the Board of Governors would respect the alternative path chosen by elected leaders for Florida Polytechnic. The board takes its constitutional duties for oversight seriously and will work hard to ensure that the Polytech is a success, Colson said. The bills that Scott vetoed on Friday included a bill (HB 5103) dealing with early learning and school readiness programs. Lawmakers had pushed the changes in the wake of scathing state audit that found widespread problems with the more than $1 billion program responsible for helping the states preschool children. The governor, however, said he was concerned some of the restrictions mandated by lawmakers would put federal funding for the program in jeopardy.Friends of 2 teens killed, burned seek answersWINTER PARK The family and friends of two central Florida teenagers whose bodies were found engulfed in flames are trying to help find out who is responsible for their deaths. The Orlando Sentinel reports more than two dozen people passed out flyers Saturday with details about a reward for information leading to an arrest. The bodies of 16-year-old Nicholas Presha and 18-yearold Jeremy Stewart were found about a week ago by bicyclists on an Orange County trail. Both teens were students at Winter Park High School and said to be best friends. Few details have been released on their deaths. Crimeline has offered a reward of $5,000 for information leading to an arrest; a fund set up at United Legacy Bank by the families will be used to bolster that amount.Tortoise, believed to be more than 100, diesSILVER SPRINGS A 660-pound tortoise in central Florida believed to be more than 100 years old has died. The Ocala Star-Banner reports Frank the Tank died in his pen at Silver Spring Natures Theme Park on Thursday. The Aldabra tortoise was the oldest animal at the theme park, where he lived for nearly 40 years. Aldabra tortoises are a native species in a group of islands belonging to Seychelles, a country off Africas east coast. Frank the Tank is believed to have died from old age.Man charged after boy tests positive for cocaineJACKSONVILLE Jacksonville police have charged a man with child neglect after a 4-year-old boy tested positive for cocaine. Published reports say police responded to a complaint of prostitution and narcotics activity at a Candlewood Suites hotel room Wednesday. When they arrived and knocked on the door, a 4-year-old boy answered and said, Hi, policeman. The door was then abruptly shut. Officers were eventually able to get inside the room, where they found a substance that tested positive for crack cocaine on a table and on the floor. The boy was taken to a hospital where he tested positive for cocaine. Quentine Crawford has been charged with possession of cocaine. Matthew Reagan is charged with renting a space for prostitution and willfully neglecting a child, among other charges.Liquor store converted into churchLAKE WALES A Pentecostal church in Polk County has renovated a former liquor store and turned it into a house of worship. The Lakeland Ledger reports that the Pentecostals of Lake Wales church opened on March 31 in a former ABC Liquor store. The pastor and congregation members stripped the store back to bare concrete and its steel roof, then reinstalled electrical and plumbing lines with new walls, lighting and floors. The church pastor says quite a few members of his congregation tell him their former life used to be connected to the liquor store.Small fire on Allure of the Seas extinguishedFORT LAUDERDALE A small fire aboard the Allure of the Seas cruise ship has been extinguished with no reported injuries.

going to far away places like Valdosta for basketball games and being excited to play in a gym, as the club didnt have one at the time. The Boys Club was a place to go after school, where you felt safe and belonged, he said. It was just a great place growing up and it still is. I dont have any memories of the Boys Club that dont have Mrs. Kay in them, he said. Cummings helped with bruised knees, hurt feelings and listened when children needed her, he said. Mrs. Kay raised seven chil dren of her own but helped raised thousands more, he said. As the matriarch of the Boys Club, a tribute to Cummings was long over due, Kirby said. Thank you for making a difference in so many peoples lives, he said to Cummings. Thyron Taylor, past vol unteer of the year, said the club is a family environment where children from differ ent backgrounds and schools come together. His son Tavion Taylor, 9, now goes to the club, he said. Taylor said he volunteered for a summer program in 1993 as a young teenager and has coached there ever since. Its not a job, its a home, he said. Taylor said Cummings makes the club feel like a family. Shes the heartbeat of the Boys Club. John Bailey, Boys Club executive director from 1983 to 2004, said the club is a safe, fun place for boys. Past members, parents, directors and board mem bers have kept the club run ning for 40 years because of their love for the club, he said. They want to keep it running for future generations of chil dren, he said. Floyd Messer, Pop Norton and Pat Summerall helped the Boys Club get into their cur rent building in 1987, Bailey said. Bailey said the club sold everything but pencils to raise money for the building, which was built with the help of pris oners on work release. Caley said not having a mortgage payment is what keeps the club afloat. Cummings said she was a little bit hurt she wasnt allowed to help organize the celebration and had no idea it was also a tribute to her. This is the first thing weve ever had that I didnt help with. Cummings said she has no plans to retire from her work at the club. Interacting with the chil dren and their parents is what she said keeps her coming back. Cummings said men who were once members tell her they remember how she put them in the corner when they misbehaved and how shed yell Snack bar! in her Boston accent for snack time. We have been blessed in the community to have the Boys Club, said Wanda Jones, Boys Club board of directors president. But more than that we have been blessed to have Mrs. Kay.

JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City ReporterJohr displays a photograph of himself and his mother, Lu ise, in America in 1956. camps though his family had not. The man was an actor and got Johr a job in show business, working as a stand-up comedian. Shortly after his brief stint in show business, Johr began working with young survivors from concentra tion camps. When those young kids came out of concentration camps, they were animals, Johr said. He described them crouching over bowls, eating with their hands. I volunteered. We trained those kids to relax, to be human, to eat, to have con versations, Johr said. They didnt talk to each other. They were scared of each other. You wouldnt believe, in six weeks time, they knew how to dress, how to talk. Soon after, Johr came to America. He was 21 at the time and spoke little English. Johr remembers roman ticizing American culture when he was a young man in Germany. Once a group of Americans came to Hamburg driving large Buicks and pulling Airstream trailers. They boldly parked in the middle of the city. However, when he arrived he quickly realized the American Dream was not what it seemed. American people are hard working people, Johr said. Nothing is given to you. He spent some time work ing as a baker, making 4 pies at a time for 60 cents a piece. In 1953, Johr was drafted into the American military during the Korean War. Johr was stationed in Germany as a mess sergeant. He stayed in the Army for 30 months. His father, sister and other relatives still lived in Hamburg at the time. The response he received as a new American in his hometown was terrible, Johr said. They can smell youre American, the soap, you know. Its just they know youre American, he said. Johr said there were many differences between American and German cul ture. Culture-wise it was a nothing, Johr said. In Germany, when you are in school you learn to go to the opera. The whole class goes to the opera. On Sunday, regardless of you go to church or not, you dress up your Sunday best. When women go shopping they dress up, they dont go with their hair all a mess. Americans, they are noisy, loud, they scream, Hello Mabel! Hey! They dont do that in Germany. Its a total-ly different life, he said. He has since visited Hamburg, but was shocked by the surge in population of the city in recent years. I wouldnt fit in there again, he said. Johr entered the retail business in 1960 and stayed in until he retired in 1994. He worked as a store manager in several loca tions, living in Miami at one point. I wasnt the best merchant, but I was very good with people, Johr said. He said his accent helped him succeed because it made people really have to listen to what he had to say. I was never a day unemployed, Johr said. I never looked how much I make, it doesnt matter. I have to eat and pay rent, thats all that counts really and you always do that. Money always came. I was pretty good. I was a good worker anywhere I went. Any job I had I enjoyed. I knew I had to work so I might as well make the best of it, right? Johr now lives with his wife in a two-story house in a picturesque community in Lake City. His home is filled with bowls of candy and pictures of smiling fam-ily. I think I had an interest ing life, Johr said. I was born at the right time and I was at the right places. Drive One 4 Ur School market. In Florida pending sales and median prices increased while inventory was reduced in March, according to Florida Realtors, formerly known as the Florida Association of Realtors. The statewide median sales price was $139,000, up 10.3 percent from last year. The interest rate for a 30-year fixed rate mortgage averaged 3.95 percent in March, down from the 4.84 percent average in March 2011, according to the state wide group. All of our trend lines are heading in the right direc tion, Sparks said. The number of transac tions is going up, prices are creeping up, interest rates are hovering in the same spot and inventory has dropped, he said. The market is more balanced than what weve seen in the past, Sparks said. Its an absolutely perfect time to buy, he said. I think people are are starting to feel much more positive about the future.

In October 2010, about 300 of the agencys Western-region employees treated themselves to a lavish vacation at a cost to taxpayers of $2,742 per head. The high-profile scandal has exposed one of the federal gov-ernments dirty little secrets: Public servants frequently help themselves to the public purse to serve themselves. Congressional testimony pinned the blame on Public Buildings Service Regional Commissioner Jeff Neely, who was the final word when it came to setting up the Vegas bash featuring clowns and mind readers. Attendees munched on mini Monte Cristo sandwich-es and petit beef Wellington. Each was treated to a $49 breakfast one of many clear-cut violations of federal rules, according to GSAs inspector general. The agency watchdog pointed out that even though regulations prohibit commemo-rative items, the conference spent $8,130 on souvenir books for participants, $3,749 on shirts, $1,840 on casino vests and $6,325 on specially minted coins celebrating President Obamas stimulus bill. Not only is Mr. Neely still on the federal payroll, but former GSA Administrator Martha N. Johnson also gave him a $9,000 bonus while the investigation was under way. The senior executives were entitled to bonuses, Ms. Johnson testi-fied Monday in explaining her action. The federal employees involved in this conference like-wise thought they were entitled to stay in 2,400-square-foot VIP suites. They felt entitled to bring along spouses at taxpayer expense. They saw nothing wrong with jetting to Vegas for eight scouting trips to pre-pare for the conference. Similar, but far less lavish, parties took place at GSA under previous administrations, and GSA certainly isnt the only agency spending big money to keep bureaucrats entertained. Mr. Obama should start by issuing guidance cracking down on government confer-ences that are thinly disguised vacations on the public dime. Congress needs to back up these policies with a law forcing public employees to pay back out of their own pockets any benefits received from improperly used funds. If these employees received advance approval from ethics officials and supervisors, everyone in the chain of com mand should be held financially accountable for the inappropriate expenditure. Public-sector unions will complain such a system would have a chilling effect on governmental travel. Thats exactly the point. The bureaucracys culture tosses around public money with abandon because its not their money. The only way to get them to treat the national Treasury with the respect it deserves is to make sure their wallets are on the line. Lets putan endto thepartying ONE OPINION ANOTHER VIEW HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY A pril 29 will mark three years since Senate Democrats passed a budget. This dereliction of duty flagrantly violates the 1974 Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act. On or before April 15 of each year, the Congress shall complete action on a concur-rent resolution on the budget for the fiscal year, this stat-ute states. Senate Democrats couldnt care less about this federal law. This is a milestone in human sloth. While it has taken major-ity leader Harry Reid of Nevada and Senate Democrats 36 months to conceive zero budgets, House Republicans have delivered two -one for each year they governed. Nonetheless, Reid said on February 3: We do not need to bring a budget to the floor this year. Its done. We dont need to do it. This is the wrong time to vote on the floor, Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad, D-N.D, declared Tuesday. I dont think we will be prepared to vote before the election. Floor votes would require Senate Democrats to borrow and spend, which annoys tax-payers, or cut outlays, which aggravates liberal lobbyists and porcine government-employee unions. So, Senate Democrats break the law and, instead, demand continuing resolutions, which spend on autopilot. Meanwhile, consider what focused, energetic humans have completed in less time than Senate Democrats have consumed to accomplish noth-ing on the budget. -Broad Group, a Chinese construction company, erected the 30-story Ark Hotel in just 15 days, late last year. Laboring around the clock, employees in Changsha used prefabricated modules to build an energy-effi-cient structure that reportedly can withstand a magnitude-9 earthquake. According to Londons Daily Mail, no worker was injured on this project. -Producer David O. Selznick and director Victor Fleming took nine months and 16 days (January 26 to November 11, 1939) to shoot, edit, and release Gone with the Wind. This beloved Civil War epic features a huge cast, massive sets, lav-ish costumes, and landmark performances, all of which made it a box office smash. It eventually scored a then-record 10 Academy Awards. -Led by Supreme Commander Dwight Eisenhower, Allied forces landed on Frances Normandy Beach on June 6, 1944 and bravely battled Nazi Germany until Victory in Europe Day on May 8, 1945. American and allied GIs needed 11 months and 2 days to liberate Europe. -Creating the Empire State Building required one year, three months, and nine days. Between January 22, 1930 and May 1, 1931, some 3,400 workers built what stood as the worlds tallest skyscraper for 42 years, rising 1,454 feet above the sidewalks of New York. (The late, great World Trade Center won that distinc-tion in 1973.) As documentarian Ric Burns noted, the build-ings steel beams were forged in Pittsburgh and whisked to the site via trains, barges, and trucks. As they were riveted into place, they still were warm -The Pentagons construction began on September 11, 1941 and ended one year, four months, and two days later, on January 15, 1943. Col. Leslie Groves (who later spearheaded the assembly of the atomic bombs that ended World War II) led the installation of this 6.5 million-square-foot office building, still Earths most vast. Oddly enough, the 9/11 hijack-ers crashed into the Pentagon on the 60th anniversary of its groundbreaking, killing 189 people. -According to the latest Department of Education data, 656,784 students earned MBAs and other masters degrees in 2008-09. Most secured these credentials within two academic years. -In the War of 1812, American GIs spent two years, six months, and six days (June 18, 1812 to December 24, 1814) persuading revanchist British soldiers that we werent kid-ding when we declared inde-pendence on July 4, 1776. These triumphs of human action are both private and public. Even government some-times can finish what it starts, assuming leadership, industri-ousness, and responsibility. Too bad these virtues are AWOL in todays Democratic Senate. Senate Dems: We dont need no stinkin budget LETTERS TO THE EDITOR To the Editor:As a teacher whose class is primarily focused on FCAT remediation, I was disappointed in the Lake City Reporters choice to run the New FCAT: Plentys at Stake article. Teachers and administration work with our students all year to ensure they are as comfortable and confi dent as possible before FCAT. Running an article on projected FCAT failure among schools during FCAT week is incredibly discouraging. I understand the need to inform the general public of foreseen failures; however, it would have been more appropri ate to do so after FCAT testing is complete. As you can imagine, our students are vulnerable during this stressful time. The last thing they need is their local, home-town newspaper putting such negative statistics on its front page. Perhaps next year, you may try to produce an article that highlights the students hard work and preparation, or simply offer encouraging words and well wishes. This way the students and teachers may feel like they have the support of the town in which they live. Caroline E.

BY E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org T his is the sound of the White House throwing down the gauntlet to House Republicans: Until the House of Representatives indicates that it will abide by last summers agreement, the president will not sign any appropriations bills. The letter, from acting White House budget director Jeffrey Zients, was sent to Rep. Harold Rogers, R-Ky., the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, who finds himself in an unenviable position. Rogers committee must report out the 12 annual spend-ing bills that will fund virtually the entire governments opera-tions for the fiscal year begin-ning Oct. 1. President Barack Obama said he will not sign any of those bills if they call for spend-ing less than the amounts that he and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, agreed to in a debt-ceiling accord last August. But Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., chairman of the House Budget Committee, has reneged, with considerable support from his partys right, on that agreement. Meanwhile, the Democratic-controlled Senate is going ahead with its own ver-sions of the 12 spending bills, ones that adhere to the original budget agreement. The House and Senate versions of the bills must be reconciled before they can be sent to Obama for his signature. The typical course is that the two sides come right up to the edge of a full or partial govern-ment shutdown and then pass a clutch of stopgap funding mea-sures to buy enough time to clean up the mess theyve made after the election. However, it would take only one gross political miscalcula-tion to turn this political game of chicken into a fiscal disaster, and the current atmosphere of poisonous partisanship leaves plenty of room for fiscal miscal-culation.

Others paused from sidewalk chalk art to wave as a state officials toured Happy House, a Lake City child care center. Dr. Melody Jurado, director of Floridas Office of Early Learning, toured the cen ter and the Early Learning Coalition of Floridas Gateway Thursday in an effort to visit all 31 coalitions in the state. Formerly part of the state Agency for Workforce Innovation, the Office for Early Learning oversees the operation and funding of the early learning coalitions and reports directly to Gov. Rick Scott. Jurado was appointed to the position in September. Early learning coalitions distribute school readiness funds for subsidized child care, coordinate voluntary pre-kindergarten programs and serve as a child care resource and referral service. The local coalition funds about 90 facilities in Columbia, Hamilton, Lafayette, Suwannee and Union counties. The subsidized child care and voluntary pre-kindergarten program helps ensure all children are ready for kindergarten, no matter their economic background, said Thomas Logan, executive director for Early Learning Coalition of Floridas Gateway. Logan said he wanted Jurado to experience a set of centers that was very different than larger coalitions elsewhere in Florida. Our coalition is probably the most rural in the state, he said. Formed in 1999 as a school readiness coalition, it changed to the Early Learning Coalition of Floridas Gateway when the state introduced the voluntary pre-kindergarden program in 2004, he said. The coalitions $10 million budget from state and federal tax dollars goes into the local economy, through child care providers and training, Logan said. Its a really nice deal for the local economy, he said. After touring the centers playgrounds, classrooms and garden, Jurado said it was wonderful to see the children smiling and engaged with their peers and teachers. Too often adults dont realize the impact you have on a child, said Jurado, who was the chairwoman of the Early Learning Coalition of Hillsborough County before being appointed director. More and more, state and federal legislators are realizing how important the time from birth to age 5 is in a childs development, she said. Preschool child care is not just babysitting or playtime, it is an important time for cognitive brain development, she said. Every $1 spent on programs for preschool-age children yields $17 to $33 savings in remediation costs later on, she said. Less money spent on re-teaching material means more money to better enhance a childs education, she said. Jurado said she is the states point person on how important the preschool age is for a childs development and for the success of the state. I cant let any of these children down. Jurado said her goal is see how the state can better serve and be an adjunct to coalitions and child care providers. We want to hear how we are doing, what more can be done, she said. Over the next year, Jurado said, the state will be rolling out new measures to screen for developmental delays, observe classrooms for quality teacher-student interactions, and measure developmental growth. Its not a baby FCAT, she said, but rather a way to find problems and make improvements. Sheryll Walker, executive director of nonprofit Happy House, said she was honored to have Jurado tour the center. Walker said centers 250 children are used to visitors because United Way often tours and college students do internships there. For more information, visit the coalition at 1104 SW Main Blvd in Lake City, or call 752-9770. 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL SUNDAY, APRIL 22, 2012 CALENDAR: State Aglow officer speaksContinued From Page 5A 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & ST A TE SUNDAY APRIL 22, 2012 Page Editor: Xxx, 754-xxxx6A To Candidates for Floridas Columbia County School District Superintendent:I have a question for all of you.

By TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comElaine Warner started volunteering her time at the Lake City VA Medical Center when her husband died 10 years ago. Friday, Warner and other VA volunteers were recognized for donating their time to the facility at the Lake City VA Medical Centers Annual Volunteer Awards Ceremony and Luncheon. The ceremony and luncheon was held at the Florida Gateway College conference center with more than 130 in attendance. Warner received the 10,000-hour award for the time she has volunteered to the VA. Im absolutely astounded that I received this award, she said after the ceremony. I knew I had hours, but I didnt know I had accumulated that many. Warner, 79, was proud that the time she volunteered helped so many veterans. Im a window of a veteran, Im retired and I have time on my hands, she said. I like volunteering at the VA because of what I do for the patients. We go and deliver goody bags and the looks on their faces when they are given something that they never thought they would get is priceless. Warner encouraged others to volunteer as well. Being a volunteer is the least we can do for the living veterans for what they did for us, she said. Warner was the recipient of the top award given at the ceremony, but others were also recognized for donating their time to improve the lives of veterans. the Presidential Lifetime Achievement award recipients were Hoyt Holland and Roy McLendon; the 5,000-hour award recipient was Linda Curry and the 7,500-hour award recipient was Michael Weldon. Volunteers with anywhere from 100 hours to 16,640 hours were recognized during the ceremony as part of National Volunteer Week. Michael Weldon received a service award plaque for volunteering 7,500 hours at the Lake City VA Medical Center. Weldon has served as a volunteer for more than 12 years. It was astounding to get the plaque, he said. I didnt know I was getting the award plaque, it was shock to me, but Im dedicating this in memory of my daddy, Cleveland Weldon Sr., he died 20 years ago and he was a Korean War veteran. Weldon said he is happy to volunteer and help veterans. I started volunteering because I love helping people and you never know when its going to be your turn and you might have to have someone help you out, he said. Maureen Wilkes, Lake City VA Medical Center acting associate director, said the Lake City VA Medical Center and surrounding clinics have more than 462 volunteers who donated over 38,000 hours of service during the last fiscal year, estimated at a cost of $830,000. Volunteers at the facility deliver goody bags, take care of certain veterans, serve coffee in the waiting rooms, man the facilitys information desks, help with mailing and stuffing envelopes, escort patients to various departments and perform a number of other tasks. The volunteers function in numerous roles its amazing what they do, Wilkes said. The volunteers for us are critical. They are critical to us to fulfill our missions of honoring Americas veterans and they serve in valuable roles and they are essential to our functions. LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & NA TION SUNDAY, APRIL 22, 2012 7ACOLSON: Ran CREEPContinued From Page 1A Page Editor: Xxx, 754-xxxx LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & ST A TE SUND AY APRIL 22, 2012 7A7A State workshop set for Monday on social status of black men, boysBy TONY BRITTtbritt@lakecityreporter.comThe Florida Council on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys will have a strategic planning workshop at the Lake City Police Department on Monday. The workshop is open to the public and begins 9 a.m. The workshop is designed to help provide better structure in accomplishing the councils full mission. Several Florida legislators are members of the council and will be participating in the strategic planning workshop. The council has repeatedly stressed the importance of community support in efforts to raise awareness about the socioeconomic conditions affecting black men and boys in Florida. The council on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys is housed in the Office of the Attorney General. Created by the state legislature during the 2006 legislative session, the council is charged with making a systematic study of the conditions affecting black men and boys including homicide rates, arrest and incarceration rates, poverty, violence, drug abuse, death rates, disparate annual income levels, health issues and school performance. The goal of the council is to propose measure to alleviate and correct the underlying causes of the conditions described above. These measures may consist of changes to the law or systematic changes that can be implemented without legislative action. The councils next full meeting will be on May 16-17 in Tampa. The purpose of the May 16 meeting is to discuss the recommendations included in the 2011 Annual Report; May 17 is a workshop designed to discuss four areas of interest in Education, Health and Families, Criminal Justice and Crime Prevention and Employment. The meetings are open to the public.

A nasty primary battle between Romney and his GOP rivals took a financial toll on his presidential campaign, which raised $12.6 million in March and left Romney with about $10 million in the bank by months end. All told, Obama and the Democratic Party raised a combined $53 million in donations during that period, while Romney with his party pulled in about half of that. Still, an anticipated fire hose of cash from major Republican super political committees and the Republican Party is likely to bring some financial parity to the general election, for which Romney only recently started collecting donations. Super PACs like American Crossroads and its nonprofit arm, Crossroads GPS, raised $100 million this election cycle, and the groups plan to flood the airwaves in coming months with ads critical of Obama. Also helping Romney is the Restore Our Future super PAC, which reported an $8.6 million last month, largely from a handful of wealthy donors and some continued supporters. The group, for its part, spent more than $11 million on TV spots during the month, coming off a successful track record of battering Romneys GOP primary opponents with attack ads. He helped run the Committee to Re-elect the President when it set up an effort to gather intelligence on the Democratic Party. The arrest of CREEPs security director, James W. McCord, and four other men burglarizing the Democratic National Committee offices in 1972 set off the scandal that led to Nixons resignation in August 1974. But it was actions that preceded the actual Watergate break-in that resulted in Colsons criminal conviction. Colson pleaded guilty to efforts to discredit Pentagon analyst Daniel Ellsberg. It was Ellsberg who had leaked the secret Defense Department study of Vietnam that became known as the Pentagon Papers. The efforts to discredit Ellsberg included use of Nixons plumbers a covert group established to investigate White House leaks in 1971 to break into the office of Ellsbergs psychiatrist to look for information that could discredit Ellsbergs anti-war efforts.

Playoff push begins Tuesday for Lady Tigers BRANDON FINLEY /Lake City ReporterColumbia Highs Kayli Kvistad connects with a pitch dur ing the Lady Tigers game against Atlantic Coast High on Thursday. FROM THE SIDELINE Brandon FinleyPhone: (386) email@example.comBigger picture still availableC olumbia High must quickly put behind its 4-3 loss in the championship game of the District 4-6A championship, or use it for By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comAfter a 4-3 loss against Atlantic Coast High in the District 4-6A championship, Columbia High will be look-ing for a little revenge when it begins the state playoffs on Tuesday. The Lady Tigers drew the winner of Orange Park and Oakleaf high schools with Oakleaf coming out on top in a 5-0 win. Columbia will travel to Oakleaf for a 4 p.m. game Tuesday in Orange Park. Theyre extremely like Atlantic Coast, Columbia head coach Jimmy Williams said. Theyve got a group CHS enters districts as No. 1 seedTigers will face winner of Atlantic Coast/ Wolfson on Tuesday By BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High looks to keep its unbeaten record in District 4-6A unblimished as the Tigers enter the district tournament as the No. 1 seed beginning on Tuesday. Columbia (13-11) finished the regular season with a perfect 5-0 record in district play to earn the top seed. The Tigers will travel to Atlantic Coast high school for the tournament where it will meet the winner of Atlantic Coast High and Wolfson High at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Atlantic Coast finished in a three-way tie for sec-ond in the district with a 3-2 record in 4-6A play during the regular season. The Stingrays only losses came against Columbia and Stanton Prep. Columbia coach J.T. Clark fully expects to take on the home team in the opening game, but he doesnt think the home crowd will play too much of a factor. We have to handle our business either way, Clark said. Itll be tough in what is basically a home game for them, but we travel well, so hopefully it doesnt become a factor. The Tigers defeated the Stingrays in their only regular-season meeting on March 14. Columbia won the game 5-2 with a strong pitching performance from Kellan Bailey. Bailey went the complete game and struck out 12 bat-ters while allowing only one hit in the game. Well have Kellan on the mound again, Clark said. Hes been our horse all year. We want to step up our hitting and if we get two or three runs, that should be enough for Kellan to win us the game. Columbia had five hits last time against the Stingrays with Levi Hollingsworth leading the way with a 2-for-3 performance at the plate. We saw their No. 1 last time and he was decent, but we definitely need to get more than five or six hits, Clark said. We need to do what we can do to make it a little easier on oursevles. St. Augustine will take on the winner of Stanton Prep and Lee high schools in the other semifinal game. Clark offered up his prediction and expects to see St. Augustine in the finals if the Tigers win on Tuesday. The championship game will take place at 7 p.m. on Thursday. Honestly, St. Augustine is the better of the teams, Clark said. Theyre coached well, play hard and although they dont have a superstar, they battle, scratch and claw. Clark doesnt want to completely discount Stanton Prep from the con-test either after it finished in a tie for second during the regular season. Stanton has a very good record, I just feel that St. Augustine is surging at the right time, Clark said. The Yellow Jackets also hit a hot streak late last season and won the dis-trict title before advancing a couple rounds in the state playoffs. Clark is hoping that the Tigers can be the roadblock for St.Augustine this year. JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City ReporterColumbia High baseball head coach J.T.

The Lady Tigers begin their trek for a state championship when Columbia travels to Orange Park at 4 p.m. Tuesday. Oakleaf High stands in the way of a rematch against Atlantic Coast High on Thursday Columbia cant think about how the Lady Stingrays stole a district championship from their grasp, or they use it to drive them. Theres no time for feeling sad. Theres no time to think about what might have been. Theres only time to think about whats to come next. Theres only time to think about knocking off one more opponent to have a chance at revenge. The Lady Tigers have been stung twice by the Stingrays now, but the good news is that it only takes winning one game. And what better time for Columbia to choose its win than the state playoffs. If Columbia can pick up two wins in a row to begin the Class 6A playoffs and early-season loss and district championship heartbreak will quickly be erased. Its hard to beat a good team twice. Its harder to beat a great team three times. Make no mistake, Columbia softball team is great. How else do you define three playoff appearances? How else do you define over 90 wins? Columbia cannot let this loss define them. The Lady Tigers must find a way to feed off the loss or forget it completely. The goal coming into the season was never a district title. Sure, it would have been nice, but this team has loftier expectations. They have bigger dreams. Most of all, they have the talent to reach those expectations and dreams. Its not an easy task. Each out must be played like theres a runner on third with two outs in the bottom of the seventh while protecting a one-run lead. Each at bat must be taken like its the last chance to tie the game with nobody on and two outs in the final inning. Each pitch it the most important. Each swing is the most crucial. Everything that has happened before Tuesday is preparation. This is the moment the Lady Tigers have been waiting for. This is where the road to the ring begins. Brandon Finley covers sports for the Lake City Reporter JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter Columbia Highs Jayce Barber (7) delivers a pitch during a game against Robert E. Lee High on March 29. Tigers take down Bulldogs to end regular season By BRANDON FINLEY email@example.com After a late-season slump, Columbia Highs baseball team pulled it together to end the season on a high note. The Tigers defeated Suwannee High, 2-0, in a rain-shortened game on Thursday. Columbia went five innings without a hit against the Bulldogs before the Tigers put up the tworun difference in the bot tom of the fifth. Ryan Thomas start ed the inning with a hit, stole second base and advanced to third after the pick at second got away from a Bulldog player. Caleb Vaughn walked and Travis Brinkley laid down a suicide squeeze to catch the Bulldogs by surprise. Brinkley not only scored the runner, but he also reached on the bunt attempt for the 1-0 lead. Alan Espenship deliv ered the Tigers second run with a base hit to score Vaughn. He was also pretty good at the mound. Despite sporting a 0.00 ERA for the year, Espenship picked up his first win since returning from injury. He went five innings, allowed four hits, struck out three batters and walked one batter. He threw really well, Columbia head coach J.T. Clark said. It was his lon gest outing since returning from injury. Clark was especially pleased how Espenship responded when facing a jam in the top of the fifth. He did a great job get ting out of a bases-loaded situation, Clark said. He didnt have any outs and struck out two batters and got a 6-3 play for the third out. Clark also credited the defense behind Espenship. It was by far the best defense we have played all year, Clark said. We didnt have any errors for what seems like the first time all year. Were stepping up at the right time and playing team baseball.

Both receive first-round byes and will play Mondays winners on Tuesday. In Mondays 4 p.m. game, Bradford plays No. 6 Interlachen High. Despite having to face the tournament host, Fort White has had success against Keystone Heights during the season. The hometown Indians beat the visitors, 4-0, on March 1 as Robby Howell fired a no-hit ter. Fort White won 8-5 on the road. Rizzi plans to start Kevin Dupree against Keystone Heights with Lane Pendergrast on relief duty. If we are fortunate to advance, we will go with Robby Howell and Brandon Sharpe in relief, Rizzi said. Our strength going into the tournament, as well as all year, has been our pitch ing. I have a lot of confi dence in all four of these guys and I am hopeful we will play strong defense behind them and swing the bats well enough to give them some run support. Leading the offense is Bryce Beach, who is hit ting .365 with 17 runs, 12 RBIs, two doubles and 10 stolen bases. Dupree is hit ting .306 with nine runs, 11 RBIs, five doubles and two home runs. He has drawn 19 walks, several of them intentional. Kody Moniz leads the Indians in runs scored with 16. He has nine RBIs, four doubles, one triple and seven stolen bases. Brandon Myers is hitting .259 with 10 runs, seven RBIs, one double, one triple and 10 walks. Howell has a pair of doubles and a home run. Pendergrast has scored 10 runs and has four doubles. Taylor Morgan has scored 12 runs and Sharpe has scored 10. Brady Wilkinson has scored seven runs and has seven RBIs. Nick Butler is hitting .263 with five RBIs. We have a very strong district and any team is capable of beating any other team on a given day, Rizzi said. I feel like we are peaking at the right time, as we have been playing some of our best baseball to date. They understand we have been preparing all season for this time of year. A Fort White win over Keystone Heights would bring on Williston at 7 p.m. Tuesday. The Indians split with the Red Devils this year. The championship game is 7 p.m. Thursday.
4B LAKE CITY REPORTER SPORTS SUNDAY, APRIL 22, 2012 Page Editor: Brandon Finley, 754-0420S&S Charity Golf Tournament Annual fundraiser event raised $80,000 By ANTONIA ROBINSONSpecial to the ReporterThe Foundation for Florida Gateway College and Catholic Charities each received $30,000 from the 12th Annual S&S Charities Golf Tournament at The Country Club at Lake City on Friday. Were just very appreciative of our vendors that have supported this golf tournament for 12 years, said Lester Scaff who, along with wife Anne, owns S&S Foods. The tournament provides about $80,000 in one day. Many of the vendors are outside of the community but participate to support the local cus-tomers. We look forward to next year. Since the tournaments inception the Foundation for Florida Gateway College has been one of the chari-ties receiving a donation. The Foundation provides financial support to Florida Gateway College. This has been a tremendous benefit to our founda-tion for the last 12 years, Foundation Executive Director Mike Lee said. Our share of the proceeds has been more than $325,000, and with the match weve received on the funds from the state its been more than half a million. We really appreciate Mr. and Mrs. Scaff, and we appreciate Mrs. Scaffs 30 years of service on our foundation board. The Scaffs and the S&S team have always been supportive of Catholic Charities. Its an outstanding event with outstanding people participating in this for our community, said Catholic Charities COO Suzanne Edwards. The money raised makes a difference to the families serviced and in need. We know even in these times we can use the extra money to help some-one in need. More than 100 golfers participated in the scramble tournament. What better way to spend a beautiful day with friends raising money for S&S Charities, the tournaments Master of Ceremonies Mike McKee said. Lester and Anne do a wonderful job every year. Fridays winner in the gross division was the team of Brian Parent, Ernie Reiter, Pat Womble and David Morgan with a 57.

Tournament winners Charles Peeler (from left), J anet Creel and Doug Peeler split the $490 prize pot. of seniors and its only a second-year school. Theyve been beat by some teams that arent that good, but theyre playing really good ball right now. Oakleaf will use two pitchers against Columbia who are polar opposites. They have two girls and the second girl throws really hard, Williams said. That tends to work out in our favor, because we seem to hit better against the girls that throw hard. When the dust settles, Williams doesnt believe the district championships will play a role. He said before the game that the cream will rise to the top by Thursday. In order to get where we want to be, we have to beat these teams, he said. Whoever is going to advance has to win two in a row. After all is done, the best team will advance. Orange Park also has a chance to beat Atlantic Coast on the other end of the bracket. The Lady Raiders have already done so once this season in a 3-2 win. Theyre playing good toward the end of the year as well, so you never know, Williams said. At the end of the day, Williams doesnt care which team the Lady Tigers draw in the second round as long as they make it there. The best team will come out of the group, he said. We would have liked a dis-trict championship, but it didnt happen. Who knows, we might have a chance to play them again. Williams said there were tears following the game, but the group is mature enough to know that the next game is the most important. Were truly excited about our chances, he said. Even if we would have won, we still would have to put together two wins. It would just have been in a different sequence. But to be the best, well have to beat the best. Nothing about our goal has changed. Weve played Atlantic Coast twice and if we get them a third time, we hope its the charm. Theyre not out of our league by any means. The players are over it. They understand that were not out of it. Now Williams is excited to play a team that doesnt know the ins and outs of the Lady Tigers. The good thing about playing Oakleaf is they dont know anything about us, Williams said. The problems weve had all year came to focus in the last game, but hopefully weve learned. We didnt get a dis-trict title, but we can still be the top team and come out of it. They struggled again early this year, but just like last year they got hot, Clark said. I feel theyll win the game. Columbia actually played the Yellow Jackets twice during the regular season. The second game was counted as a non-district game and the Tigers didnt throw their ace allowing St. Augustine to split the series. I feel theyll win, Clark said. Itll be the rubber match for us. They werent afraid of us last time. Clark expects to throw Alan Espenship in the championship game if things go according to plan. Espenship is slated to throw, but weve got to win one to get there, he said. Its not out of the realm of possibility that we might have to use him in the first game. When asked for the key to winning the district championship, Clark offered a simple strategy. What we have to do is what weve been doing the last couple games, he said. We have to fight to move runners over. We have to play unselfish and pitch like weve been pitching all year. I feel like well be the best team if we do those kind of things. We have to build on what weve put together over the last cou-ple of games and keep that going. Allmendinger to start on pole at Kansas SpeedwayBy DAVE SKRETTAAssociated PressKANSAS CITY, Kan. AJ Allmendinger rolled off the track and hopped out of his car, convinced that hed put together a decent quali-fying run but expecting to start somewhere in the top 15 on Sunday. Turns out hell be starting up front. Allmendinger captured his second career Sprint Cup pole Saturday, turning a lap of 175.993 mph in his Penske Racing Dodge to knock Kevin Harvick off the top spot. Joey Logano had the third fastest time but will start at the rear after changing engines dur-ing practice Friday. It was the first pole for Allmendinger since 2010 at Phoenix. He nearly had the pole last month at Bristol but was edged out by Greg Biffle by a thousandth of a second. I didnt think the lap was amazing. I thought it was OK, said Allmendinger, who learned his lap time from crew chief Todd Gordon moments later and couldnt help but smile. I was kind of shocked by it, he said. Everybody has been working hard. Were getting closer were not where we want to be at. Logano went off first in qualifying and posted a lap of 175.724 mph, then watched as car after car failed to touch his time. It wasnt until Harvick turned a lap of 175.747 that Logano was finally bumped. Well shotgun the field, Logano said. Its like the old short-track days. Didnt they pay you more if you started at the back and you passed them all? Ill have to talk to NASCAR about that. Denny Hamlin posted the fourth-fastest lap, followed by Mark Martin and Martin Truex Jr. Dale Earnhardt Jr. qualified seventh for Hendrick Motorsports, which is try-ing to an end a 13-race drought and reach mile-stone win No. 200. The team hasnt reached Victory Lane since Jimmie Johnsons win at Kansas last October, the longest winless stretch since the 2002 and 03 sea-sons. Johnson qualified 15th after going sideways in Turns 1 and 2. He managed to recover down the back stretch and put together a solid second lap, but the bobble through the corner may have cost him a chance for his second consecutive top-10 qualifying run. An eventful 1 and 2, said Johnson, a two-time winner at Kansas. We know we got an awesome race car. I just hope we dont hurt our-selves too bad here. Local favorite Clint Bowyer who is from Emporia, Kan., and raced on the dirt track at nearby Lakeside Speedway qual-ified eighth. Kasey Kahne was ninth and Sam Hornish Jr. was 10th. Hornish was among 11 cars that had to make the field on time. The full-time Nationwide driver will be making his first Sprint Cup start since Pocono last June. ASSOCIATED PRESSRick Hendrick (left) and Jimmie Johnson (right) are se en before the NASCAR Sprint Cup Samsung 500 race at Texas Motor Speedway in Ft. Worth, Tx. o n Friday. Hendrick still seeks 200th win at Kansas SpeedwayBy DAVE SKRETTAAssociated PressKANSAS CITY, Kan. Its turned into the joke that nobody can really laugh about, the cloud hanging over one of the most successful teams in the history of NASCAR. Thirteen races have passed since Hendrick Motorsports reached Victory Lane, the longest drought the team has expe-rienced since the 2002-03 seasons. And the result is that Hendrick is still stuck on 199 victories, the mile-stone maddeningly just out of reach. You know, now its turned. Weve been so close to getting it the last month or so, its kind of a deal now where were joking, like, lets not even think about it, said five-time Sprint Cup champi-on Jimmie Johnson, who claimed the teams last vic-tory in October at Kansas Speedway. The series is back this weekend for the first of two races this year. It should give the powerhouse team some positive vibes. Johnson also won from the pole at Kansas in 2008, and Jeff Gordon won the first two races at the track in 2001 and 02. Dale Earnhardt Jr. has five top-10 finishes on the 1 12 -mile oval and is currently third in points, while Kasey Kahne is coming off a Trucks series win at Rockingham. No owner has more wins at Kansas Speedway than Hendrick. We know our teams are all capable of win-ning races. Weve all been there, Johnson said Friday. Whenever it hap-pens, youll see a very big sigh of relief from Rick and the team. Its not as though Hendrick Motorsports hasnt been competitive. To the contrary: It has been frustratingly close. Hendricks stable has finished second four times since Johnsons victory during last seasons Chase, including his second-place run last Saturday night at Texas.

Rivers Library and Media Center, is expected to contribute significantly to the local economy, Executive Director of Library and Community Services Jim Morris said. The new library has a wide range of resources devoted to business education. Florida Gateway College offers business as a major, and provides for its students access to databases that contain thousands of business journals and magazines. Newspaper subscriptions such as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Rolling Stone are available for anyone in the community to peruse. The new library, which has a coffee shop offering strudels and lattes, is open to everyone. Wireless Internet access is available as well as around 40 Internet stations. Community members are asked to attain a library card, which are issued at no cost. No card is needed, however, to come to the library to relax and read magazines. We have always welcomed everyone, Morris said. We are super friendly.

This is part of our ongoing effort to meet the goals of our strategic plan. Our members expressed they wanted a way to find out what was going on in our community as well as be able to have a one stop site where they could find out information that would help their business. While you are Thinking Lake City First, and you need a business, be sure to check out the website for a list of our members as well as their contact information. The site also has a calendar of events that lists not only Chamber events but other events hosted by our members or nonprofit groups. We also realize that local citizens arent the only people who are looking at our site. We have a relocation guide for people who are thinking of moving to the area as well as listings of our major employers in Columbia County. It will continue to be a work in progress but we encourage you to check out www.lakecitychamber.com and let us know what you would like to see us add to the site! In the last month we have had two of our highly anticipated annual events, The Business/Citizen of the Year luncheon and the Legislative Breakfast. Both events had over 100 attendees! At the Business/Citizen of the Year luncheon we honored the three finalists in the large and small business category. The finalists in the small business category were: Pro Motion Physical Therapy, Anytime Fitness, and Restoration Specialists. Restoration Specialists was awarded the top small business of the year honor. In the large business category the finalists were: Florida Gateway College, Century Ambulance Service, and First Federal Bank of Florida. This was the second consecutive year First Federal was nominated and they took home the award this year. Charlene Brown, with Columbia Bank, was presented with the honor of Citizen of the Year for her many years of dedicated service to several organizations in Columbia County. The Legislative Breakfast, sponsored by Clay Electric and Peoples State Bank, gave our local legislators a chance to talk about what they accomplished during the recent session. There was representation from Senator Rubios office, Senator Nelsons office, Congressman Crenshaws office. Senator Olerich, Senator Dean and Representative Porter were able to make the event in person. After each legislator was given an opportunity to speak to the group, the attendees were then able to ask questions. We appreciate the support of our legislators who always make it a priority to speak to By JOYCE M. ROSENBERGAssociated PressNEW YORK Dont be misled by reports that inflation is tame. For small business owners, its a threat to profits and expansion plans. An 8 percent increase in the cost of eggs over the past year is eating away at restaurants and bakeries. Cottons 14 percent increase is hurting clothing manufacturers and retailers. And any business that sends somebody on a sales trip is bearing the brunt of an 8 percent increase in jet fuel or 7 percent rise in gasoline. If this were a normal economy, companies could pass along the cost of doing business to customers. But these days, customers are demanding to pay less, not more. As a result, small businesses are often left with no options. You have to absorb a lot, says Celeste Hilling, whose skin-care company has seen travel costs rise 30 percent in the past year after a 20 percent gain the year before. Rising fares, baggage fees and hotel bills are to blame. Many companies have to adjust the way they operate. Hillings Carlsbad, Calif.-based Skin Authority is doing more training through online seminars rather than in person. The kind of numbers that Hilling deals with may surprise anyone who believes that the governments Consumer Price Index tells the story of inflation. In the 12 months that ended in March, the CPI rose 2.7 percent. Subtract food and gas as some economists do, and whats left is called core inflation. It rose 2.3 percent. Thats close to the target of 2 percent set by the Federal Reserve, which sets monetary policy so inflation doesnt get out of hand.

The updated space has two meeting rooms and a set of study rooms, a notable upgrade from the previous facility which had no meeting rooms. We have much more space for a conference and for people to come and share information, Morris said. The new space has the potential to attract more people to the area, bene fiting the college as well as the local economy. Currently the library is investing $60,000 on materials for the col leges nursing major. The college is hoping to have its first four-year program approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. If approved, the school hopes to invest in additional programs such as Early Childhood Education and a busi ness and logistics pro gram. Once they have approved your four-year program, they dont scrutinize you as much, Morris said. If these plans come to fruition, new resources will be acquired to aug ment the librarys selec tion in those specific areas. Executive Director of Media and Community Information Mike McKee said the new library could lead to an increase in stu dent enrollment. Students like learning in a new modern facility, McKee said. We would hope that our enrollment would increase. Morris said the library was built to be a techno logically plugged-in facil ity. The library was built for the future, not the present or the past, Morris said. Morris said there was not much additional room for books in the facility. Its all going electron ic, he said. 2C LAKE CITY REPORTER BUSINESS SUNDAY, APRIL 22, 2012 CHAMBER: Website will better serve Continued From Page 1C April 22 is Earth Day.

D I V A LIFE Sunday, April 22, 2012 www.lakecityreporter.com Section D We were joined by Tim Brock today for lunch at Mikes Caf & Grille. In 1995 Andys Kitchen opened at 426 SW Commerce Drive and it was basically an upscale kitchen store with unique kitchenware. In 1996 Mike and Andi Grecian expanded into the next storefront and opened Mikes Out to Lunch. It was and still is a place to go when you want a meal that is out of the Lake City norm and has an elegant yet comfortable atmosphere. Andi says that the name came about because folks would ask where is Mike and the answer usually was Mikes out to Lunch. Dont know what that says about you, Mike, although the name has now been changed and most days we see you there with your apron on. The wait staff, dressed in their signature black uniforms, are courteous, efficient and menu savvy. This always makes a restaurant visit memorable. The menu is primarily soups, salad, sandwiches and sides. They are open evenings Wednesday through Saturday where full dinner entres are offered. They have also expanded their times to include Sunday brunch and lunch. Catering is also available. On this visit we tried three different items. Tims AUCE fish and chips came with cole slaw and fries. Mary Kay had the steak sandwich on Cuban bread and the chicken tortilla soup and Genie had the half chicken salad with the 3-potato salad. Of course, we tasted each others dishes and came up with an A+ for all of them. The fish was especially good and was a mild fish called Swai. We werent familiar with this fish but it was light and flaky and didnt have that strong fishy taste. It was cut into strips, lightly breaded and crisply fried. Tim says that he would have that one again. The tortilla soup was loaded with chicken, kidney beans, corn, sour cream and tri-color tortillas on top. It was very hearty and thick. The steak sandwich was cooked just right and served with grilled onions on delicious Cuban bread. The potato salad was made with white, new and sweet potatoes. Uniquely different and delicious. Weve been to Mikes many times so we want to mention some other favorites. Genie loves, loves, loves the Sriracha chicken salad and has it almost every time she goes. The chicken is in bite size pieces, lightly fried and then dipped in the wonderful spicy Sriracha sauce. It reminds us of Bam Bam shrimp at Taste Buddies visit Mikes Story ideas?

This Saturday the latest in jewelry, handbags, candles and makeup will be gathered in one spot for a pampering event thats also good for the community. The third annual Diva Day, hosted by the Altrusa Club of Lake City, is Saturday April 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Columbia County Fairgrounds banquet hall, 438 SW State Road 247 in Lake City. The event will also have vendors with craft supplies, dietary supplements, party rentals, accessories, health screenings, cakes and chocolate, said Jan Smithey, co-chair of Diva Day. Some vendors will have giveaways and drawings at their booths. Its a fun day for the girls to shop, she said. The first 300 Diva Day visitors in the door will get a free cosmetic bag from Altrusia, she said. Admission is $5, which enters you in a drawing for two silver tickets for the upcoming Suwannee River Jam, worth about $400, or a Mariana bracelet, worth about $150. People can buy tickets to enter the drawing even if they are not able to make it to Diva Day, she said. Proceeds from the event go to local charities. After last years Diva Day, Altrusia donated $9,300 to the community, Smithey said. We are a builder of women and it really plays into what we stand for, she said. Most of the 45 vendors are from Columbia County and some are from surrounding counties, she said. The event allows businesses to show their wares and meet potential customers. Its a good thing for small businesses, Smithey said. The event gives the community an opportunity to meet Altrusa members and share in their volunteer work to help the community, she said. Tickets are available at the Lake City Reporter, the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, the Lake City Advertiser and at the door. Altrusa is a professional business club that devotes time and energy to community service and developing leadership. TASTE BUDDIES continued on 2DImagine a community that allows industry to spew smokestack pollution into the air and discharge all sorts of toxic pollutants into nearby rivers and lakes. Up until 1970, thats exactly what happened all across the country, and it was even legal. We had no agencies or regulations to protect our environment. In the spring of 1970, a U.S. senator created Earth Day as a way to force the government and millions of Americans to become aware of environmental issues and take action. Each community seized the opportunity to address local problems, and this grassroots movement had a profound national impact. In December of 1970, as a result of this first Earth Day, Congress authorized the creation of a new federal agency. The new agency, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA, had quite a challenge ahead. The public wanted cleaner air, land and water. Since 1970, the EPA has been working to repair damages and set regulations to further protect human health and the environment. Communities and individuals recognize Earth Day by focusing on local issues and environmental concerns. At North Palm Beach, locals enjoy the Annual TurtleFest: A billion Acts of Green celebration. West Palm Beach holds an Earth Day Festival to encourage appreciation and conservation of South Floridas natural resources. Atlanta is holding an Earth Day Cleanup Challenge. Birmingham Gardens focus on plant pollinators and native plants. So, what are you going to do for the Earth on April 22? Plant a tree, remove invasive plants, fine tune your sprinklers, plant some native butterfly plants? Whatever it is, the world will be a better place for you, and for me. Just wait and youll see... Our drought periods can stress water supplies when people use so much to keep lawns green. When you understand your lawns environmental needs and the lawn care practices for our local conditions, you get a healthy, environmentally friendly lawn. You can even design a yard so it thrives on rainwater alone, without additional irrigation. http://fyn.ifas. ufl.edu/ Threats to our springs are numerous, but we can all work on ways to help protect springs, the aquifer and our drinking water.

Birth Announcement By RUSS BYNUMAssociated PressSAVANNAH, Ga. Owners and managers of swimming pools at hotels, city recreation centers and public parks are scrambling to install mechanical chair lifts to comply with new federal requirements that all public pools be accessible to disabled swimmers. Some hotels fear the cost of the equipment or fines for noncompliance could put them out of business, and an industry lobbyist says others may close their pools this summer if they cant upgrade in time, though the government can offer more time to those having trouble paying for it. Swimmers with disabilities say the changes are overdue. I couldnt get into the pool without it, said Karyn Kitchen of Savannah, who has multiple sclerosis and relies on a poolside chair lift at the Chatham County Aquatic Center for her physical therapy workouts up to four times a week. Adding to the problem is a backlog of orders created by the rush to meet a May deadline. Harry Spirides ordered lifts last month for the hotel he owns on Georgias largest public beach and was told they should arrive in late April. He expects to pay $12,000 for the lifts at the Ocean Plaza Beach Resort on Tybee Island. Our supplier is backed up with orders, said Spirides. Everybodys rushing to comply; everybody wants to comply. But when you have tens of thousands of swimming pools that have to be retrofitted with these lifts, it takes time. Changes to the Americans with Disabilities Act in 2010 say pools must be upgraded with chair lifts, essentially mini cranes that move wheelchair users into the water. The initial deadline was March 16, but confusion over the details and pool owners insistence for more time caused the Justice Department to give them until May 21. The law doesnt affect private clubs or pools owned by neighborhood associations that arent open to the public. Its a massive and expensive undertaking. The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals says its research shows that between 235,000 and 310,000 pools require the upgrade. Manufacturers estimate the lifts run $3,500 to $6,500, and installation can double those costs. Altogether, owners could face combined costs exceeding $1 billion. Still, whatever hurdles pool operators face will ensure fewer obstacles for thousands of disabled swimmers. After a car crash left Beth Kolbe unable to walk 12 years ago, she took up swimming and went on to compete in college and on the U.S. Paralympic team in 2008. Despite her athleticism, she needs a persons help or a lift to access a pool. Kolbe says when she visits pools, she usually takes a friend to avoid asking for help from lifeguards, who often seem uncomfortable lifting her. I cant tell you how many times Ive been to a pool and they have a lift but nobody knows how to use it its in the corner and probably broken, said Kolbe, a 26-yearold student at Stanford Law School in California. Once the requirements take effect, the Justice Department will investigate complaints and can fine businesses up to $55,000 for the first offense and double that for further violations. Pools operated by local governments dont face monetary penalties but are subject to federal oversight. The government can give pools more time if they show financial hardship and have a plan to save up for the equipment. Pool owners say theyre not opposed to making accessibility upgrades, but argue they need more time especially after a clarification to the requirements in January. The Justice Department now says chair lifts must be bolted down. That declaration came as most hotels were buying portable lifts that dont require expensive installation and can be wheeled into storage until a guest needs them, said Kevin Maher of the American Hotels and Lodging Association. The group argues that fixed chair lifts pose a risk to children who are tempted to play on them. Maher, the associations vice president for government relations, said hoteliers fear their insurance rates could increase. The association is urging the Justice Department to reconsider portable lifts and extend the deadline. Without more time, Maher said, some hotels may close their pools this summer rather than risk lawsuits or fines. Whether they actually do it, I dont know, Maher said. Its a notion pool owners and operators are contemplating. In Desert Hot Springs, Calif., the requirements have created an uproar among owners of boutique inns built By MICHAEL TARMAssociated PressCHICAGO Getting news from a big trial once took days, moving at the speed of a carrier pigeon or an express pony. The telegraph and telephone cut that time dramatically, as did live television broadcasts. Now comes Twitter with more changes, breaking up courtroom journalism into bite-size reports that take shape as fast as a reporter can tap 140 characters into a smartphone. But the microblogging site is increasingly putting reporters on a collision course with judges who fear it could threaten a defendants right to a fair trial. The tension was highlighted recently by a Chicago courts decision to ban anyone from tweeting or using other social media at the upcoming trial of a man accused of killing Oscar winner Jennifer Hudsons family. Reporters and their advocates insist the practice is essential to providing a play-by-play for the public as justice unfolds. Were troubled by this ban, said Ed Yohnka, Chicago spokesman for the American Civil Liberties Union. Tweeting and social media are merely the 21st century version of what reporters have always done gather information and disseminate it. Judges, he said, should embrace Twitter as a way to shed light on the judicial process, which, for many Americans, remains shrouded in mysterious ritual. The judge in the Illinois case fears that feverish tweeting on smartphones could distract jurors and witnesses when testimony begins Monday. Tweeting takes away from the dignity of a courtroom, said Irv Miller, media liaison for Cook County Judge Charles Burns. The judge doesnt want the trial to turn into a circus. Burns is allowing reporters to bring cellphones and to send e-mails periodically, a notable concession in a state that has only recently announced it will begin experimenting with cameras in court and where cellphones are often barred from courtrooms altogether. Theres also an overflow courtroom where reporters can tweet freely. But there will be no audio or video of proceedings in the room, just live transcripts scrolling across a screen. The issue extends beyond journalists to jurors, whose tweets have raised issues of their own across the country. Last year, the Arkansas Supreme Court threw out a death row inmates murder conviction after one juror tweeted during proceedings and another slept. Juror Randy Francos tweets ranged from the philosophical to the mundane. One read, The coffee sucks here. Less than an hour before the jury returned with a verdict, he tweeted, Its all over. Theres little gray area regarding jurors tweeting. The Arkansas trial judge had warned jurors, Dont Twitter anybody about the case. Burns was similarly explicit during jury selection in Chicago. But theres no consensus among either state or federal judges about the propriety of in-court tweets, so individual judges are often left to craft their own rules. For instance, the judge in the child sexual abuse case of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has allowed reporters to tweet from pretrial hearings but not to transmit verbatim accounts or to take photographs. Judge John Cleland hasnt indicated whether he will change that policy for the June trial. In some ways, Judge Burns has gone further than others. To ensure his ban is respected, hes assigned a member of the sheriffs department to track reporters Twitter accounts while court is in session. To get accreditation to cover the trial, reporters had to disclose their Twitter handles.Judges, journalists clash over tweetsHotels, rec centers try to slow pool access regsASSOCIATED PRESSStefan Freeman demonstrates how to access a swimming pool using a hydraulic car lift in Mission Viejo, Calif.

LAKE CITY REPORTER LIFE SUNDAY, APRIL 22, 2012 3D DAVID GERMAINAssociated PressLOS ANGELES As superhero summers go, this one is truly super. Amid one of the mostpromising box-office seasons Hollywood has ever served up, three movies stand above the rest. The first weekend in May brings The Avengers, the ensemble adventure team ing Robert Downey Jr.s Iron Man with such fellow Marvel Comics heroes as Thor, Captain America and the Incredible Hulk. The Amazing Spider-Man follows over the Fourth of July as Marvels web-slinger gets a fresh origin story, with Andrew Garfield taking over as teen-turned-superhero Peter Parker. Finally, in late July, theres The Dark Knight Rises, with Christian Bale returning as DC Comics masked vigi lante in the finale of director Christopher Nolans Batman trilogy. These three are the gold standard for fans: The Dark Knight, Tobey Maguires three Spider-Man flicks and Downeys two Iron Man movies are the six top-gross ing superhero adventures ever. Add in solid receipts for solo turns of Avengers co-stars Chris Hemsworth in Thor and Chris Evans in Captain America: The First Avenger plus the lure of a new incarnation of the Incredible Hulk by Mark Ruffalo in Avengers and summers superhero meter is off the charts. The Avengers is literally one of the first books I fol lowed regularly. ... Some of the work that was done in there was really groundbreak ing and really epic, said The Avengers writer-director Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Its great fun to take characters that you are so invested in, because you grew up with them, and get to put words in their mouths and figure out what theyre going to be doing with their lives for a while. Of course, theres plenty to fill in the gaps between super hero sagas. Other action tales include Men in Black 3, with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones; Kristen Stewart and Charlize Therons fairy-tale makeover Snow White and the Huntsman; Ridley Scotts return to sci-fi with Prometheus; Avengers co-star Jeremy Renners The Bourne Legacy; Colin Farrells remake Total Recall; and the board game adaptation Battleship. Cartoon makers offer up the Scottish adventure Brave, the latest from the animation virtuosos at Pixar, while talking-animal franchis es return with Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted and Ice Age: Continental Drift. The comedy and music front brings Adam Sandlers fatherhood story Thats My Boy; the all-star song fest Rock of Ages; Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hills suburban romp Neighborhood Watch; Sacha Baron Cohens tyrant tale The Dictator; and Whitney Houstons final film, Sparkle. And what would summer be without vampires? Johnny Depp turns blood-sucker as he reunites with director Tim Burton for Dark Shadows, a big-screen take on the gothic soap opera. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has the great emancipator taking down the undead. Like director Whedon with The Avengers, Amazing Spider-Man star Garfield practically has Peter Parker in his DNA. Garfield has been a huge Spider-Man fan since age 4. I know the character real ly well. Its part of me already. Its like Ive been preparing for the role for 24 years, said Garfield, who hints that des tiny is at work in this version as orphan boy Peters search for his parents puts him on a path with the mutant spider that endows him with super powers. Directed by Marc Webb and co-starring Emma Stone as romantic interest Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as the villainous Lizard, Amazing Spider-Man aims to walk the line between gravity and exu berance, Garfield said. Marc Webb has approached this with a real eye for authenticity, emo tional authenticity, a kind of groundedness and grittiness. It feels a bit darker to me, Garfield said. Also, its really important that Spidey has fun and is witty. The masks a very powerful thing for any one who wears it. It gives you leave to do anything you want, and I think in the hands of a teenager, hell just run riot. I hope weve managed to have some of that. The Avengers has super hero puppetmaster Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) rounding up Downeys Iron Man, Scarlett Johanssons Black Widow, Evans Captain America, Hemsworths Thor, Ruffalos Hulk and Renners Hawkeye to take on Thors evil brother (Tom Hiddleston), who plots to unleash alien marauders on Earth. The Avengers challenge was just not so much the scope of it, Downey said. Its funny to think about a superhero movie as being complex, but I think it was a little bit daunting imagining how you get the balance of all of these intersecting sto ries. ... It was a bit of a welcome relief in a certain sense in that Avengers, once it took shape, was a very, very smartly executed and con trolled venture. Whether alone or togeth er, much of the gang will be back. Downeys about to start shooting Iron Man 3, Hemsworth and Evans have Thor and Captain America sequels coming and theres talk of solo spinoffs for some of the other Avengers. Unlike Avengers and Amazing Spider-Man, Dark Knight Rises will not be playing in 3-D. Director Nolan just isnt a fan. Nolan does like shooting for the huge-screen IMAX format, so fans can count on a visual spectacle in those theaters. On 3-D, I dont know if that was ever even a debate, said Gary Oldman, who returns as Batmans police commis sioner ally, Jim Gordon. Its IMAX. Thats as big and bold as it gets, so theres plenty of that. Anne Hathaway signs on as Catwoman, while Nolans Inception co-stars Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy join returning Batman cast mem bers Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine. Nolan and his cast have kept details secret, but the film could spell a dark end for Bales Dark Knight: Hardy plays the villain Bane, the brawny brute who broke Batmans back in the comic books. Hardy has a tough act to follow. The late Heath Ledger won an Academy Award as Batmans last foe, the Joker, in The Dark Knight. I find it interesting that he picked Bane as a villain, and he was not tempted to use the Riddler or the Penguin, the more obvious choices, Oldman said. It suits the story better. Its a great read, its a great piece. And there we are. Theres the end of it. ____Heres a look at other sum mer highlights: MAY Battleship: Taylor Kitsch and Liam Neeson are in the Navy now as sailors take on inhuman invaders in an action tale inspired by the game.

NASA said Monday theres a good chance that Space Exploration Technologies Corp., or SpaceX, will make its April 30 date to launch a cargo ship to the space station. More software testing is needed before a final go is given. Managers said they will meet again next Monday to review everything. The Dragon spacecraft will be hoisted aboard the companys Falcon rocket from Cape Canaveral. The companys chief executive officer and chief designer, Paypal co-founder Elon Musk, said the Falcon and Dragon are proven vehicles. Whats new is get ting the supply ship to the space station. Musk was hesitant to give out odds for success, stressing that this is a test flight. NASA has paid $381 million to SpaceX to get this far, under its post-shuttle push for commercially provided cargo and, in three or more years, possibly crew. Musk said the company has put about $1 billion of its own money into the venture. SpaceX is one of several companies competing for the right to handle astro naut ferry trips. Until then, American astronauts will have to travel aboard Russian spacecraft to the space station. Musk plans two more Dragon flights to the space station this year, if all goes well on the upcoming mission. NASA loaded the Dragon with nonessential items such as clothing, food, computers and science experiments. The capsule is designed to return to Earth with a full load as well, something none of the other visiting cargo ships from Russia, Europe and Japan can do. NASA says by bringing back old equipment, money can be saved by refurbishing the pieces and launching them back up, rather than buying new replacements. By retiring the space shuttles last year, NASA wanted to focus on getting astro nauts beyond low-Earth orbit, possibly asteroids and ultimately Mars. By MATT VOLZAssociated PressGREAT FALLS, Mont. Regardless of whether claims are true that author Greg Mortenson fabricated portions of Three Cups of Tea, neither he nor his publisher can be held liable because the First Amendment protects exaggerations or lies in memoirs, his publishers attor ney said Wednesday. Penguin Group (USA) attorney Jonathan Herman and attorneys for Mortenson, co-author David Oliver Relin and Mortensons charity, the Central Asia Institute, asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by four people who bought Mortensons bestselling books. The lawsuit was filed after 60 Minutes and author Jon Krakauer published reports last year that Mortenson fabri cated parts of Three Cups of Tea and Stones Into Schools, which recount his efforts to build schools in Central Asia. The suit claims Mortenson and the others committed fraud, deceit and were involved in a racketeering conspiracy in publishing lies. Mortenson headed the conspiracy to set himself up as a false hero so that he could sell millions of books and raise tens of millions of dollars for his charity, the plaintiffs attorney Zander Blewett said. Mortenson obviously is the main, main liar, he said. He has just drafted himself a web of deception ... and used it to raise $62 million. In arguing to reject the case, neither Herman nor Mortenson attorney John Kauffman addressed the specific fabrica tion claims. Herman said the proper place for some one to object to the books is in the sphere of public debate, not in a courtroom to be prosecuted by self-appointed truth police. The First Amendment permits someone who writes an autobiography to exaggerate or even lie, Herman said. U.S. District Judge Sam Haddon did not make an immediate ruling, saying he wanted to consider the arguments further. Three Cups of Tea, which has sold about 4 million copies since being pub lished in 2006, was conceived as a way to raise money and tell the story of his institute, founded by Mortenson in 1996. The book and tireless promotion of the charity by Mortenson, who appeared at more than 500 speaking engagements in four years, resulted in tens of millions of dollars in donations. The book recounts how Mortenson lost his way after a failed mountaineering expedition and was nursed back to health in a Pakistani village. Based on the villag ers kindness and the poverty he saw, he resolved to build a school for them. The lawsuit filed by two California residents, a Montana man and an Illinois woman who bought the books says that tale is among more than two dozen alleged fabrications and accusations of wrongdoing by Mortenson and the oth ers. The hearing comes less than two weeks after Mortenson and the Montana attorney general announced a $1 mil lion agreement to settle claims that Mortenson mismanaged the institute and misspent its funds. The agree ment removes Mortenson from any financial oversight and overhauls the charitys struc ture, but did not address the books contents. Thats where the civil lawsuit comes in. The plaintiffs are asking Haddon to certify their lawsuit as a class action that would make every body who bought the books a plaintiff. They want an accounting of all the money collected form book sales, have that money refunded to the people who bought the books and have additional damages put into a trust for a humanitar ian organization selected by their attor neys and approved by the court. A First Amendment expert called the lawsuit absurd, regardless of whether the books contain fabrications. Mortenson did not defame or harm anyone in his books and, barring nar row exceptions like national secrets, he can write what he wants and does not have to justify it, said Wayne Giampietro, a Chicago attorney and general coun sel of the First Amendment Lawyers Association. It is what it is: Heres a book. If you want to buy it, buy it. If you dont, dont, Giampietro said. The defendants lawyers said such a case, if it were allowed to proceed, would damage the publishing industry and dampen free speech because it would require prohibitively expensive fact-checking for every book published. In the case of Mortensons memoir, it would be virtually impossible to inde pendently verify all of his experiences in Central Asia, especially with several people cited who are now dead, Relin attorney Sonia Montalbano said. His story hasnt injured anyone, so there is no need to, she said. No one can be damaged by someone telling his own life story, she said. After the 60 Minutes and Krakauer reports last year, Penguin promised an internal investi gation into the allegation that portions of the books were fab ricated. Blewett referenced that investigation Wednesday. Herman declined to pro vide any updates, either during or after the hearing. The publisher knows only what the author has told it. Thats it, Herman said. One of the lawyers in the case is Larry Drury, who also represented plaintiffs in a class-action lawsuit against James Frey, who admitted on the Oprah Winfrey Show that he lied in his memoir A Million Little Pieces. That lawsuit ended in a settlement that offered refunds to buyers of the book. Drury and Blewett say the Mortenson and Frey cases are stunningly close, but Haddon said he would not consider that case in these proceedings because it was settled without addressing any of the issues before him now.

Author Greg Mortenson faces civil suit over best-seller Three Cups of Tea The lawsuit was filed after 60 Minutes and author Jon Krakauer published reports last year that Mortenson fabricated parts of Three Cups of Tea and Stones Into Schools, which recount his efforts to build schools in Central Asia.

DEAR ABBY: Melody has been my best friend since we were in the fourth grade. (Were now in our 30s.) Over the past few years, Melodys life has changed. She separated from her husband, lives alone and shares custody of their three children. She started dating almost immediately after her separation, going out with almost anyone who showed her a little attention. Shes now involved with a man who told her hes bisexual and has never taken her out on a date. (Still, he never hesitates to call and ask her to clean his bathroom or cook him a meal.) Shes always crying on my shoul-der because she ends up with losers, yet the picture she has on her profile on all the dating sites shows her in a skimpy bikini. One evening Melody asked me why she cant attract a decent man. I told her that she needs to love herself before she can be loved. I also mentioned that if she wants to stop attract-ing sleazy men, she should consider changing her profile picture. She became angry and hasnt spoken to me since. As a friend I felt it was my responsibility to tell her the truth. I want to help get her life back on track in a positive way. Was I wrong to be honest with her? -HAD HER BEST INTERESTS AT HEART DEAR HAD: Your straight answer clearly wasnt what your friend wanted to hear, but you did the right thing by being honest with her. In light of the length of your friend-ship, call and offer her an apology if I hurt your feel-ings. Lets hope that once she cools off, shell appreci-ate that you said something important. Because of the way shes advertising herself on her profile, its little wonder the men shes attracting are looking for nothing more than two headlights and a tan. Yipes! ** ** ** DEAR ABBY: When I was 25 I placed a baby girl for adoption. I made a decision I thought was best for her and for me. I am 50 now and still believe I made the right decision. Last year she searched for and found me. I answered all her questions and eventually met with her and her parents. By all accounts she has a wonder-ful family and had a great childhood. We have stayed in touch through email. Abby, I feel nothing toward this girl. There is no maternal attachment. I did my job as a good mother and made sure she had the home I could not give her. If I never see her again it wouldnt bother me. I cant be the only woman who feels this way. Im not looking for a way to change my feelings. I just need to know Im not a cold-hearted freak. -FINE WITH MY DECISION DEAR FINE: You are not a cold-hearted freak. Youre a woman who never bonded with her baby. Please stop beating yourself up for not feeling something for a person who is a virtual stranger. When I hear from other women who read this letter and who feel as you do -please notice I didnt say if I hear from them -I will share their thoughts with you.

The Tokyo Skytree is the worlds second-tallest structure behind the 828-meter (2,717-foot) Burj Khalifa in Dubai, according to owner Tobu Tower Skytree Co. The needle-like radio and television tower opens to the public on May 22. Journalists given a tour Tuesday saw sweeping if hazy views of the Tokyo skyline. It took about 50 seconds in a high-speed elevator Tuesday to zip up to the lower observation deck at 350 meters (1,148 feet), and another 30 seconds to reach the higher deck at 450 meters (1,476 feet). The Skytree has a restaurant and two cafes on the observation decks, a vertigo-inducing glass floor that allows visitors to look straight down, and an emer-gency staircase with 2,523 steps. The tower was constructed with extremely strong steel tubes surrounding a central concrete column that are structurally separate from each other in the towers mid-section. In the event of an earthquake, the concrete core and steel frame are designed to offset each other to reduce the buildings over-all motion. The Skytree has been built to stand firm even if a mag-nitude 7 quake were to strike beneath the building, said Sho Toyoshima, a spokesman for Tobu Tower. He said the tower sustained no structural damage from the magnitude 9.0 quake that struck off Japans north eastern coast last March, even as it was being built. The Skytree is expected to bolster television and radio transmissions in the capital region. Owners hope it will also become a new tourist destination in Tokyo.

It will open to the public in May.Japans newest tower uses anti-quake technology The tower was constructed with extremely strong steel tubes surrounding a central concrete column that are structurally separate from each other in the towers mid-section. around mineral hot springs. Some retreats have only six or 10 rooms, but have multiple pools at varying temperatures to give guests a sampling of the waters. If you have three pools thats $18,000 plus tax to attach a chair lift to each, said Bruce Abney, owner of the 12-room El Morocco Inn & Spa. Thats just huge for us and would put some of us under, Im afraid. If the 20 hotels there could share portable lifts, it would satisfy the requirements and protect their bottom line, said Judy Bowman, owner of Living Waters Spa. Ive never had a request for a pool lift in eight and a half years. It seems exces sive, said Bowman, who has nine rooms and six condos. For large chains such as Hilton or Holiday Inn, the challenge is more likely about time than money because of their deep pockets. But chains can also get bogged down in bureaucra cy, said Mehmet Erdem, a professor who studies hotel operations at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Corporate headquarters have to work with management companies, building owners and others to make sure upgrades are done uniformly and without tarnishing their brands.
